Prepare to be hooked from page one of this shock-inducing medical thriller from

Dr. Carrie Bryant is a much-admired neurosurgical resident at an esteemed Boston hospital. When the relentless pace of her residency leads to a life-shattering error, Carrie loses her confidence—and decides to quit her residency and move back home. Her new life’s purpose: To help her combat-vet brother, Adam, recover from a crippling case of post-traumatic stress disorder.

It seems like Adam’s best option, but Carrie has her doubts when one of her patients goes missing…and then another. Carrie joins local investigative reporter David Hoffman in the hunt for answers.

As Carrie and David descend into a labyrinth of murder and corruption, the price Carrie could pay for asking the wrong questions is her own life…
